If we had to pick just one thing as the crux of the success of a learning business we’d definitely argue it would have to be the learning experiences—the products and services that are actually offered. That’s because the learning experiences that learning businesses provide are at the essence of what they do.
But in order to effectively do this, we need to have a solid understanding of adult learning theory. And although many of us are already familiar with concepts related to this, there can be tremendous value in taking time to periodically revisit them.
In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Celisa and Jeff examine the principles of adult learning theory – specifically related to the need to know, self-concept, and experience - and the implications each of these has on designing, developing, and delivering meaningful learning experiences.
